The Comfort Walking Sandal

I have been in search of the perfect comfort sandal - in hopes that I could find one that also has a titch of style. In a few weeks, Mike and I are off to Italy for most of August and, if I have learned anything from my summers in New York, comfort footwear is a must. It is going to be hot. We are going to walk - everywhere.

Over the past few days, I have found myself in stores I don't typically frequent: Soft Mac, Naturalizer, Ronsons and the like. And found myself trying on shoes I know as a teenager would have mortified me if my mother was on a similar shopping mission. Good news is - either my views have changed with age (I am no longer willing to sacrifice comfort) or the comfort shoe industry has improved significantly in its offerings. In fact, I think it is a little bit of both, but I was pleased with much of what I saw out there. Here are some of my favourites - I did come home with a pair that I am testing out at home for now before committing, as I have a back up in mind.

I would love to know any of your top picks as well!
